OAKHURST — Three Yosemite High School students will present a comedy show, Mission Improv-able, on Thursday and Friday, Mar. 10 and 11, at 7 p.m. at Yosemite High School.
Ethan Solomon, Jaecie Madaus and Paul Esposito, with the help of some friends, will present improvisational games, skits, digital shorts and music in a fun-filled evening with all proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Ethan, son of Oakhurst residents Kellie and Eric Solomon, was born with a heart defect and has had multiple heart surgeries. He received gifts from Make-A-Wish and this show is his way of saying “thanks” to the organization.
“I really wanted to do something for Make-A-Wish, and my friends and I wanted to put on a show, so it seemed like a good idea,” Solomon said recently.
Jaecie Madaus added, “We do a monthly Lunchbox Theatre for the students at school, and this show is like a long version of one of those shows.”
Paul Esposito is the final member of the group presenting and he said, “We will do almost anything to make people laugh. We have one skit where people are blindfolded and walk on a sheet covered with mousetraps. Watching them jump when they get snapped is hilarious.”
The group hopes to raise as much money as possible for Make-A-Wish. Tickets are $5. For more information please call the school at (559) 683 4667.
